Ruggie’s alarm won't keep ringing indefinitely. It will atomically stop after around 30 seconds.
This is not a design flaw, but an intended feature for a couple reasons.
- Ruggie is extremely loud, peaking at 120 Decibels. This is equivalent to a blender in your bedroom going off. You should have no reason to still be asleep, unless you are hearing impaired.
- 30 seconds creates the urgency to get up, because we know waking up and getting up is two completely different things. Everyone can wake up on time, but standing up to start the day is where most people fail. This added urgency of 30 seconds will help our users stand up and start their days instead of just falling back asleep.
What if I absolutely need to prolong it?
If this is the case, we want to ask you... Is it because you're not waking up? Or is it because you're not getting up? Because if its the second case... then we advise you dig deeper in yourself to stand up against the morning resistance!
But If you absolutely cannot make it out of bed after 30 seconds of Ruggie's extremely loud alarm, then you can use advanced settings to set a second alarm to go off directly afterwards, or a minute later.
This can prolong the ringing to 1-2 minutes depending how long you set it apart. But we don’t recommend this, because Ruggie is designed to help users build the habit of starting their days early. Prolonging the sleeping and snoozing period defeats the purpose of using a Ruggie.
